My first “public” #transformationtuesday
My heart is pounding and my fingers are sweaty at the thought of sharing But here it goes before I chicken out!
On the left I’m 6 weeks PP with Raya, the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life (not being pregnant) I was feeling down about myself, self conscious and dreaming of feeling “myself again”. I was learning to be a #momof2 while struggling with my colicky baby. I was tired of giving into my excuses of why This couldn’t work for me. I was tired of comparing myself to other women wishing I was them. So I stopped feeling sorry for myself and I STARTED! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On the right I’m 45 lbs lighter ( close to 60 total) and close to 30 inches gone! I’ve gained confidence, feel strong and most importantly found self love! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to hide my stretch marks and skin from the world because It wasn’t the “perfect body” but you know what, those stretch marks and skin came from growing my babies and I’ve not only learned to accept them but Ive grown to love them because they are reminders of the 9 months I got to hog my sweet babes to myself getting to know them before anyone else did and I will gladly show them off with pride! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not one of the lucky one that the weight fell off because I was breastfeeding after a 55lb pregnancy weight gain, I had to work my ass off to get results! But Ive done it from the comfort of my home with 30 min workouts! I’ve learned the importance of balance in my eating and still very much enjoy a treat but I’ve learned I don’t need it daily. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m Raising 2 kids (for months by myself), running a full-time dayhome, and starting 2 businesses. I am beyond busy but I find time every day to show up for MYSELF! seriously if I can do it, SO CAN YOU! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a lifestyle change! There is no quick fix but if your ready to make the change in your life, let me know, I’m here to help, it’s NEVER too late to start working on you!
